SAZABI GENBU ( XUAN WU) | Sazabi Ver Ka Custom by Evon
Here’s an excerpt taken from the modeler’s site:
Here is my very first GBWC entry, Sazabi Genbu (玄武）
I did not take much wip photos. Often of time i was working on refining the backpack. Trying to make the backpack like the snake dragon entwined with it was real frustration. The initial design was much more complicated, due to time constraints, I simplified it quite a bit so that I could complete it just in time. The original Sazabi ver ka itself is already very well designed. It bought me time in a way that i could keep the detailing work to minimal and it still looked good.
I worked differently this round. Instead of finish all the mods only proceed to painting, I basically had to do both at the same time. Modifying on the parts i still need to work on, and start painting on the parts that were already ready. Sazabi has so many parts and pieces, no doubt painting took big part of my patience.
